Invincible Pictures & Philadelphia Sound Stages “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”
PhillyChitChatter Hey hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Last night I covered the “Four Seasons at the Four Seasons” and decided to share the wealth with the pixs to give Broadway Cares more press than if it was just on my site, which I know has a lot of readers, but the event had a thousand stories to it and well I wanted to get maximum exposure for it. SO look for those shots & my stories on Thursday. I’m still about 10 events behind so I will be doing two entries today, this one and a little closer to 11AM another story will go live.
I hear that Ryan Seacrest was in town yesterday doing his E! News Daily Show from the lobby. I wish I knew about that earlier, I had stopped by Comcast to check out the Holiday Show, which I will be writing about tomorrow.
Today I have a sponsored blog entry by Invincible Pictures. The photographer is Chamyang Unkow. So enjoy, and check back later for the cutest store I found, that is inexpensive to boot.
Have a great day. HughE
Philadelphia Sound Stages, the only full-service motion picture studio in Philadelphia. It is amaaaazing. Two full soundstages, with the lights/wattage to light up Broad Street – you won’t see another space like this in Philly – my source tells me
Tom Ashley and Brad Heffler from Invincible Pictures and Andrew Greenblatt from the Philadelphia Film Society. According to Philly.com’s Matt Godfrey At first glance, the setting seems sort of odd: A dozen mock houses, complete with fake grass, roadways and even a white picket fence, on the second floor of a renovated warehouse along North 5th Street in Kensington. What’s even stranger is that there are some restrictions on “living” here, if you would, in fact, wish to do so. Welcome to The Neighborhood, the newest addition to the ever-growing Philadelphia Soundstages, a 50,000-square-foot film and television production facility. The houses that make up The Neighborhood are not actually living spaces at all. They’re affordably priced office spaces for smaller film and entertainment production companies and individuals looking to connect with the larger entertainment community. “What we’re trying to do is create an incubator environment for smaller production companies,” explained Soundstages founder and CEO Tom Ashley, who is also the brains behind The Neighborhood. “A big part of what this is all about is bringing everyone together.”

The demolished car in shot is the result of a shoot with the Jackass guys from this week at Philly Sound Stages. They shot some extra’s for Jackass 3D’s DVD release coming out soon. (I just got this picture in after I wrote up this entry” “Invincible Pictures, here in Philadelphia just wrapped shooting a music video for CKY’s song “Afterworld” which is featured in Jackass3D and the upcoming Jackass DVD. This picture is after a long night of shooting. Left to right. Bam Margera from Jackass, Kevon Glickman, CKY attorney/video producer, Chad Ginsburg from CKY, and Thomas Ashley, video director. – Is that a near beer in Bam’s hand? I thought he was on the wagon, just sayin’ )
So the Invincible Pictures team left the car in the center of the show to lend to the ambiance.
